So, my partner’s family will be spending Christmas with us this year for a total of five days. Initially this didn’t concern me at all, however as December gets closer, I’m starting to freak out a little… So much to do!

Don’t get me wrong, I love entertaining. But the thought of playing host & housewife to 5 of my boyfriend’s family scares the heck out of me! Plus, this is my first time at hosting a Christmas.

As usual, I want everything to be perfect, without it looking like I’m even trying… Yeah, good luck, I know…

So I’ve already decided that planning and preparation are going to be key, so I’m getting started now! With all the little handy tip and a my ever growing research on how exactly to pull this off, I’m going to share everything I learn here in the hope that it may help someone else’s Christmas turn out a little les stressful ?
